    Cuts Everywhere - Not The 3 For 1 Deal I Was Hoping For
    This was just a disaster. Where do I begin... Oh, ok how about the fact they played Red Like Roses Part 2 in the first little bit, long before it was supposed to be played and made several horrible and obvious cuts throughout the whole first episode. I get that they were trying to edit the show to fit three episodes in one, but they could've honestly done a lot better. The cuts were very sudden ...

    What is this train wreck?!
    While there been much debate about whether RWBY qualifies as an "anime" or whether or not its even good for those that do enjoy it, regardless of its "anime" status, this is a terrible edit as a Japanese dub.
    Its obvious they tried to cut together something on the length of regular anime episodes but the cut out WAY to much and made everything feel rushed. Its like a enthusiastic fan with ...

    Jdub is incredible, this edit, a little less so
    The Japanese Dub for RWBY is extremely well done and extremely well casted with many large voice actors. This version, is intended to air on television and play like a normal TV anime. However the cut doesn't do justice to the art style of the web series and how the episodes are viewed. It is definitely worth watching to get a taste of how the Japanese Dub is, but if you want the full experience I ...

    Cut down to the point that it feels like a trailer
    Couldn't make it through the first episode. It seems like they had the mandate to make it half as long in order to cut down on the amount of lines that need to be dubbed.

    The end result is that so many things are cut out that any sort of personality and characterization and even choreographic progression is completely lost.

    As the title says, it felt like i'm watching a trailer.

    I mean... It's RWBY, but Japanese.
    That's really all there is to say. I couldn't get why you would choose to watch it in another language, but I suppose it's nice to have options. The animation is a little spotty at times, and It's clear this was made on a low budget, but it works together well. If you want to watch RWBY, I'd personally try looking elsewhere. Every episode in the 4 seasons so far is on Crunchyroll anyway, so ...

    This show is not the RWBY i remebered
    If you have watched the original RWBY in English then you should in my opinion stick to it. Also all you newcomers to the show should also watch the English version first. Sometimes the cuts makes absolutly 0 sense so its hard to tag along in whats happening throughout the episodes, unless you have watched the original. They even cut the fights short and change lines (ex beginning of episode 1) ...

    You know, I was expecting it to be the same but in japanese
    I was kinda hoping for the 5-15 min episode format that they've had in the past for this show but it seems like it was edited to fit a TV schedule format. The cuts are kinda jarring and took away from some of the character introduction which I can already predict will end up turning the show into a somewhat more bland version of itself in its character development. The show is still enjoyable ...

    4 Stars for at least a good dub.
    A lot of people say this is bad because it not only is the episode consistency not the same, but at lot of scenes were somehow altered or omitted out completely. If you want to watch RWBY, I suggest you watch the original English-language first (at least up to the end of Volume 3) before watching this condensed Japanese-language version. But in my opinion, it's better if you just stick with ...

    About as different as expected in a sub vs dub
    I'm kind of sad that so many of the puns/jokes that originally endeared the show to ended up cut out. I can understand how working with timing, cultural differences, and formatting from the original episodes can really shake things up from what I've been used to. All in all, I found myself oddly comfortable with the Dub and look forward to watching more.

  • This is a unique series! And I bought 4 seasons...
    So I found all 5 released seasons on YouTube and binge-watched them all instead of doing homework.. I was just hooked and couldn't stop. I like the creatures of Grimm and as the series goes on, more characters get introduced and the battles just get better. If anyone has problem with the animation style, it gets better with each progressing season and the fights get better as the characters grow. ...
